NORWOOD, Mass., 19 Jan. 2010. Analog Devices Inc. in Norwood, Mass., is introducing the Blackfin BF50x digital signal processor (DSP) chips with integrated analog-to-digital converters (A/D converters) and flash memory for converged digital signal and control processing applications such as power inverters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), servo controls, and motor controls.

The new DSP chip enable designers to apply advanced power control techniques to yield greater energy efficiency. The 400 MHz Blackfin BF50x processors can extend high-performance digital signal processing capabilities to a wider range of applications, including those previously serviced by high-end microcontrollers, Analog Devices officials say.

Blackfin BF50x processors combine industry-standard interfaces with a signal processing core without the need for external components. With optional integrated dual-SAR 12-bit A/D converters and 4 megabytes of on-board executable flash memory, Blackfin BF50x processors keep off-chip components to a minimum.
